Photopolymer letterpress in Europe?

nina's picture

Can anyone recommend a shop that makes plates for photopolymer letterpress in Europe (the closer to Switzerland the better)? The two shops I keep reading about are both in the US. There must be something like that on this side of the Pond too, right?
If possible (and if I get to be picky), I'd likely prefer a place that makes the plates and also offers the printing itself, to reduce overhead / shipping costs / time.
Thanks for any pointers!

Dear Nina, previously John Repro in St.Gallen was THE address. If they don’t do it today they probably can recommend you someone else. Best, Roland

Roland! Wow, thank you so much. Even inside Switzerland! I had no idea.
"Plattenherstellung für Flexo- und Buchdruck" – "Flexodruck" would be the one I want, right? (I've only really heard about photopolymer letterpress in English, so I'm actually not sure what the proper German term is.)

PS. Good luck next week-end!

We have a nyloprint machine and produce plates for letterpress customers.

Flexo is a really different technique compared to letterpress (Buchdruck). Printing forms for flexo are commonly distorted along one axis to compensate for the behaviour of the press and substrate.
